Sonny and Cher's child transitioning from female to male Chastity is *Chaz*
CNN ^ | June 11th, 2009

Posted on 06/11/2009 8:29:19 PM PDT by TaraP

CNN) -- Chastity Bono, gay-rights activist and child of performer Cher and the late entertainer and politician Sonny Bono, is in the early stages of transitioning from a female to a male and will be known as Chaz, his spokesman said Thursday.

Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity," Howard Bragman said in a written statement.

"He is proud of his decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by his loved ones. It is Chaz's hope that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue, just as his 'coming out' did nearly 20 years ago."

Someone's decision to transition does not necessarily mean they are undergoing gender reassignment surgery, and in many cases they do not, said Mara Keisling, executive director of the Washington-based National Center for Transgender Equality.

Proof that sexual identity confusion must be hereditary. Probably freaked her out as a child that Mommy had a deeper voice than Daddy. Gotta have some sympathy though. What a crappy name to give a child - Chastity Bono? Kinda don’t blame her.

In my humble opinion, she’d be better off just accepting herself for what she is and get busy focusing on helping other people rather than focusing on self. Slice and dice what they want, a person is still the same person...live with it and deal with it...

She always seems like a nice person when I’ve seen her publicly.

Having Cher for your mother has to cause some serious problems.

I hope she comes thru this ok

<ADDADICKTOME

The first time I heard Rush say this (re some benefits for San Fran workers), I had a terrible problem with the word. ‘omy’ ought to mean something taken away, but yet, the word started with ‘adda.’ (ok, probably not a proper Latin prefix, but things change through time and I was willing to go with the flow...) How could you have a word with both etymologies?

Let me just say that many, many years of school did not help me realize what he meant until Rush talked about it on a couple of shows. When I did realize it, I had to admit that 1) apparently the book learning is getting in the way of a sense of humor and 2) I was kind of surprised that Rush said it, though I do think that Rush has gotten a bit more ‘adult’ in the past few years.

In medical parlance, the surgery is an addadictomy.

(The reverse procedure is termed a lopitoffamy.)

Those are just the ones that you are aware of. There are plenty of gay women that you'd never even notice. But then, if it doesn't look like a freak show, why would the leftist media be interested?

My point is that many people just want to live their lives and thus don't show up on the radar. Again, why would the media be interested in a gay person that just acted like a person? Where is the titillation?

I tend to think her over-glamourized, huge celebrity mother left her feeling “less” and as she had weight issues, so unattractive to men that she gave up and went the other way. In my opinion she is a “psychological” gay rather than chemical. I think Cher harped on her apperarance when she was young.

I think 80% of lesbians are psychological rather than biochemical gays—either from sexual abuse by a male as a child ( they “defeminize” themselves as a way to nuetralize any male advances) or if they are plain homely and experience repeated rejection by males, they turn to other flawed females for companionship.

I’ve known several long term lesbian couples—they are more companions than lovers.
